From burgers and fries to peanut butter and jam, there seems to be something comforting about bundling things together.
And following recent news from Origin Energy, Aussies will now be able to take their bundling love to a whole new level.
In an attempt to attract new and existing customers moving house, the electricity and gas giant is now offering Aussies the chance to combine their energy and NBN plan and save up to $10 a month off their broadband bills.
“While we remain firmly focused on providing customers with market leading smart and affordable energy solutions, at the same time we are looking for other ways to make their lives easier and add value," said Origin’s Head of Retail, Jon Briskin.
“Our aim is to create more engaged and loyal customers, and provide Origin with a point of difference in an increasingly competitive retail market.”

What NBN plans do Origin Energy offer?
Origin Energy introduced its broadband service in October last year, launching three NBN plans:
- Basic 12, from $65 per month: For households only interested in checking emails and browsing the Internet.
- Everyday 25, from $80 per month: For households that browse and stream video.
- Experience 50, from $95 per month: For households with gamers and users who heavily stream and download video and music.
In terms of fees, if you opt for a 24 month contract you won’t be charged a setup or modem fee, while 12 month contracts incur a $59 setup and $49 modem fee and no lock in contracts attract a $80 setup and $89 modem fee.
A $10 modem delivery fee applies to all plans.
“We see this as a natural extension of the services we already offer in the home, and by increasing the range of those services, over time we will be able to give customers discounts based on the number of services they have with us,” said Briskin.

And speaking of discounts, aside from receiving up to $10 off your broadband bill each month, the energy retailer is also offering $100 credit off your third broadband bill (offer ends March 15, 2019).
But while it’s easy to get caught up in the spark of a new offer, Mozo Director, Kirsty Lamont has reminded Aussies that it pays to do your research first.
“Although monthly discounts off your broadband bill and the convenience of bundling products does sound tempting, make sure the offer is competitive against other products in the market,” she said.
